Business Mission to Canada

New Opportunities in Retail, Consumer & Food

Singapore Business Federation (SBF) and IE Singapore are pleased to jointly organize a Business Mission to Toronto and Vancouver for the Retail, Consumer and Food sectors.

Canada has much to offer to the retail, consumer and lifestyle sectors.  The diverse demographics in Canada presents opportunities for Asian retailers and brands to sell into the local market, and also to test-bed their products, concepts and offerings for the North America region.  Its synergistic omni-channel solutions for retail earns accolades from industry players.  It established the Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence in partnership with practitioners which puts it at the forefront of the Innovation and Digitization space.
